Newsweek: What Is A Juggalo And Why Do They Drink Faygo?

With the Gathering of the Juggalos taking place over the course of the next four days and nights, we expect to see a few articles coming out about the event, the Insane Clown Posse and Juggalos.

Newsweek has posted an article where they make their best attempt to describe Juggalos and their subculture to the uninitiated. They talk about the name “Juggalo,”, the slang terms used, the Gathering, the acts performing this year and how to get tickets to the event.

Starting on July 31, 2019, the Gathering of the Juggalos celebrates its 20th anniversary in Indiana. But what is this mysterious festival, who are the Juggalos, and why do they love Faygo soda so much?

What is a Juggalo?

A Juggalo, Juggalette, or Juggala (Spanish) is a follower of the Insane Clown Posse (ICP), a hip-hop music group signed to Psychopathic Records, or any artist linked to the record label. Not to be confused with a Gigolo. 

The following have their own culture, slang and style, with many, if not all, taking to wearing clown makeup not dissimilar to Heath Ledger’s Joker in The Dark Knight. Mainly fans of ICP, many Juggalos drink Faygo, a much-loved root beer local to Detroit where the band comes from. At many of their gigs, the band will throw the soda into the audience, known as “Faygo Showers.”

According to contributors at Fandom, if you ever come across a Juggalo or Juggalette, these are some terms you need to be aware of if you’d like to converse with them:

Killa: Friend, referring to AnybodyKilla, the rap act from Detroit.

Cheeda: Money.

Ninja: How Juggalos address each other. It’s like saying “Dude” or “Man”.

Three-One-Three Fingerpops: Detroit police.

Shemp: A reliable Juggalo.

‘Lo Love: Short for “Juggalo love”.

Juffalo: A fake Juggalo

Juggabrony: A Juggalo who is also a fan of My Little Pony.

The Faygo War of 1911: According to the Fandom, the legend is that “Marvus the Strong of the Great State of Detroit fought Harlan The Weak-A** Hater of the State of Michigan” which caused a civil war among the Detroit Faygo Crew, a popular gang at the time. Followers of Marvus branched off and created Juggalos whereas followers of Harlan created International Business Machines, now known simply as IBM.
